‘Mad About You’ Revival Coming To TV – Set To Premiere Later This Year
Fans of the 1990s sitcom “Mad About You” are very excited right now after it was announced that the show is returning to television with the original cast, including Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser.
“We are so excited to finally be doing this,” Reiser and Hunt said in a statement. “We promise you the same funny and heartwarming show — as soon as we can remember what’s funny about being older. It’s going to be great!”
Fans of the original show will remember that it focused on the lives of two newlyweds, touching on subjects like in-laws, careers, pets, pregnancy and parenthood. It has been announced that the revival will focus on what life is like for the Buchmans twenty years later as empty nesters.
When the original series ended, Reiser and Hunt’s characters of Paul and Jamie were parents to a little girl named Mabel. Now, Mabel is an adult who has moved out of the house, leaving Paul and Jamie to navigate life as a married couple after most parenting duties are finished. Anyone who has ever been an empty-nester will be able to relate to what they are going through!
Both Hunt and Reiser seem very excited about the revival, with the actress posting “LET’S GO” on Twitter in reference to the show’s return.

Hunt said that she was inspired to bring back the show after the success of so many other revivals of 1990s sitcoms, including NBC’s “Will & Grace.”
“I’ve been watching Will & Grace and laughing so hard out loud,” Hunt said. “They’re just crushing it. I have remained very, very close friends with Paul. Reboot or no reboot, we have lunch once a month. We really enjoy and care for each other. It was a very loving piece of work. We loved it. It would be fun to work on something that’s really about love.”
